Panning for gold is no picnic, but the fleece-lined Outdoor Research Yukon Hat will keep your head warm while you scour the Tombstone Mountains for the mother lode. Earflaps snap to the hat when not needed and drop down to prevent earsicles.

Very nice hat. Checks all the boxes

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: Large

Unique and well-made, what you’d expect from OR. Just watch the sizing. Quite generous. I suppose it’s hard to purchase a sized hat without first trying it on. I bought a large (I am a 7 1/4) but it was too big. I took it to a seamstress and she is adding an elastic cord which should take care of the sizing. Love that it’s sherpa fleece- lined, generous ear flaps, an a unique two piece visor which makes it easy to fold and put away (without bending the visor). Well styled, well made, thoughtful design. Just pay attention to the sizing.

Ingenious Design

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I have bought so many hats, looking for the right one with earflaps. After buying a few cheap ones on Ebay, that I hate, I decided to pay real money for sheepskin made in Canada. Too warm! Not practical.

I took a chance on the Yukon and Whitefish.
The Yukon is handsome and sporty, and will keep your ears from burning from chilly breezes, but is not for the coldest weather. I use the Whitefish for strong bitterly cold winds.

Surprised by the exceptional quality and perfect density of the material. The folding brim is clever and useful. If you need more coverage and warmer, get the Whitefish or a sheepskin trooper hat.

Hey August!

Thanks for the great comparison and review of the product! Glad it's worked out so well for you.

Perfect for the Father-in-law

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

Bought this as a gift for a father-in-law with cold ears and good style. The materials are great and it's nicely made - He's loving the warmth and the look.

Thank you for your review!

classic cap for kids & adults

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

my 8 year old son loves the style of hat and after searching everywhere for a kids size version I settled on this in a size small and it fits perfectly for him. its a handsome tweed wool on the outside that makes it pretty waterproof for walks to the bus & back. the synthetic fleece inside is cozy but not comically thick like the trendier trapper hat versions on the market. the split in the brim, making it packable was a bonus for when it ends up in his back pack. I would highly recommend this for kids or adults. its a classic hat.


    Northern Alberta/B.C Canada.. Outside all weather conditions,all times of day and night and all seasons. Love this hat. Obviously not survival gear but for day to day use perfect. I rock a shaved head all year and my head is always toasty warm.I bought a small which is a size or two ( pending on manufacture ) than I normally wear. It did stretch a bit and is now my best fitting hat no matter the weather. I highly recommend this hat . Will be buying more. Also the main reason I bought this hat is the split brim so you can fold it and put it in your back pocket or travel.

    Wool content not correct

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

    The item was fine although I never used it due to it not meeting the wool content specs given- 70% wool. The tag says it is 70% polyester 30% wool. I bought it for the higher wool content represented, but not accurate. I will be returning. Three stars for it being a decent hat just not enough wool.

    Wool content not correct

    Very poor customer service

      I ordered this hat. Not only was the product of poor quality but it was a real ordeal trying to return the product. The link to create the return label is “fake” and the print link does not work.

      Great hat

        This hat fits perfectly, its warm, cozy and is well made. Shipping was fast as well. Got it with in 2 days of ordering.

        I don't have THAT big a head

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times
        • Fit: True to size
        • Size Bought: Large

        I followed the sizing specs and purchased a large, even though my head size is generally a medium across the board. Sure enough, large was too large. Follow your usual.

        I got a second one

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
        • Fit: True to size
        • Size Bought: XL

        After years of use I got a second one. This is my most used cap. This keeps the snow off my glasses and ears, great for shoveling lots of snow. Plus it stays in my suburban or daypack almost year around, great for cold summer mornings in the mountains here. Stuffs into my daypack great, I have a stuff sun hat for when it gets warmer. My old one has been through the wash, no dryer, several times and still wears/looks like new. sizing, well the xl fits me like a glove, I wear 2xl moto helmets, starts with a K ends with M, the other is a Shoe with a i.

        Excellent! Thank you Tim!

        Enjoy - we have plenty of other colors for you as well. It is a best seller!

        Where is this hat made

        I kind of like this hat

          Pleased with this hat. I do agree with other people, but the hat does seem a bit thin when you pull down the ear flaps. I'd still buy this hat again knowing that because to me it feels very comfortable.

          Thanks Mark - this is a top seller for OR and we have LOTS of colors. Enjoy it!

          Colors way off, material very thin

            The color I purchased was "Black/Earth" and the colors in the photo are way off. In the photo, the colors have a warm reddish hue and you can see blue spots. The actual hat colors look washed out and muted. The material is extremely thin and barely covers your ears- this is NOT a hat for a cold day. The hat feels cheap and not worth the price in my opinion.

            Hey Shawn, I am so sorry that you didnt like this hat. I will send your feedback to our designers. This is one of our best sellers, so I was surprised to read this. Thanks so much for writing, and I am sorry for my delayed response in getting to you!

            Lumberjack chic

            • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
            • Fit: True to size

            This is a pretty comfy, warm hat. It excels on chilly dog walks, but when the breeze kicks up, the lack of tie downs for the ear flaps leaves something to be desired.

            Hey RT - Leta with OR here. Seems ike we might want to add some stiffening to the ear flaps to keep them down. I can completely understand what you are saying, but you are right about lumberjack chic! It looks good, and although we have lots of other options that work functionally better around the ears, this one is trying to hit a "look" as well. I'll pass on the feedback.

            Thanks so much for the review,

            Cold air comes thru the flaps

            • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
            • Fit: True to size

            This is not a great hat for keeping the ears warm. The flaps don't lay flat on my ears and the button holes allow cold air in as well. Not made for really cold weather. Just my opinion.

            Keeps the noggin warm and glasses clear

            • Familiarity: I've used it several times
            • Fit: True to size

            nice hat, soft and good fit. I like it. the fit guide is spot on. Ill see if it holds up a couple years and make it a 5 if so.

              • Fit: True to size

              This is my new go to hat! Short split bill is great, easy to fold for pocket storage. Well made, good fit.

              Best wool hat

                This is the best wool hat available in XL size, with a brim and ear flaps. The shorter brim is great for keeping the rain or snow off my eyeglasses. Longer brims on other hats usually get in the way of seeing up, especially tromping around the woods. The double layer keeps my head warm in most cold temps except when the wind blows hard. Comfortable too.

                You mentioned wearing this in snow and rain. How well does this hat repel water/moisture? I love the look of this hat but hestitate buying it since I live the Seattle area with its typical misty and rainy winters. Advice?

                Great Style

                  awesome hat, great style, i would gave 4.5 stars just because of the buttons to hold the fur ears, I would recommend it, worn in February NY, -5� C, my ears were warm and comfortable.
